The workshop at The Jason Bennett Actor's Workshop will consist of four sessions, July 25-28. Classes will begin at 6:30 PM and continue to 11 PM.
The Tony winner, according to press notes, "will assist aspiring artists, educators and experienced performers in the craft of singing, acting and storytelling. Ms. Buckley shares her expertise and guides her students through a methodology that facilitates audience connection through songs and monologues. Her emotional connection to songs and audiences is renowned, and that very connection is at the heart of what Ms. Buckley imparts to her students."
The class welcomes auditors, at a reduced rate, who participate in all aspects of the class – including group exercises and work with partners – except the individual singing and monologue coaching by Buckley. A pianist will be provided. For further information about the Manhattan workshop and an interview with Jason Bennett, call (212) 777-7603 or go to JBActors.com.
